All About Red at Lawn Fawn



I feel very priviledged to be playing along in Lawn Fawn's 2nd blog hop, having missed the first because the list filled up so quickly! So welcome, sit back, relax and be prepared to see RED!  (Not in a bad way!)
You should have come to me by way of Crafty Math Chic and should already be feeling really inspired!  The theme for this hop is all about RED!  The hop runs from Friday, December 9th through to Sunday, December 11th.  Make sure to comment on all the blogs as there are lots of prizes to be won!  All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.  The hop is being sponsored by some amazing companies, Lawn Fawn, Mold Muse and Whiskers Graphics!

Let me not waste any more of your time so that you can hop on further and comment as much as possible, here is my card:


Paper:Neenah; My Mind's Eye (12 Days of Christmas)
Ink: Distress Inks (Iced Spruce; Festive Berries; Chipped Sapphire; Peeled Paint); Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Making Frosty Friends; Lunar Lights);  Hero Arts ( sentiment)
Other:Diamond Stickles; Perfect Pearls Mist

I first created my background night sky with my Iced Spruce and Chipped Sapphire distress inks.  I hand cut the snow hill and dotted it with some Diamond Stickles.

I then stamped, trimmed and inked the lanterns and sprayed them liberally with some Perfect Pearls Mist.  The little mittens were stamped and paper pieced and added to the lanterns, which in turn were adhered to the notecard with dimensional foam.

And here is another view so that you can see all that shimmer on those lanterns!


Next up is Yenni Natalia, go and feast your eyes!  If for some reason you have lost your way, don't worry, just head back to the Lawnscaping blog to see the complete list of designers and prize information.

So, from me it's goodbye for now, but I hope to see you again soon!  I'm off to hop too!

We don't see the lanterns like that too often here in my neck of the woods, so it's fun for me to see what I consider to be a unique spin on the Christmas theme. Great job creating that nighttime sky!
